When corrupt US Government officials, the Kremlin and Russian Red Mafia square off in a high stakes game of cat and mouse, the CIA must move to protect its most valuable top-secret weapons project. As clandestine operations corrupt the powerful, espionage begins reaching the highest levels of Federal Government with deadly consequence.
As cutting-edge technology falls into enemy hands, CIA Director Mitchell Hughes calls on a reluctant Geophysicist, Daniel Bowman, who is unwittingly thrust into the heart of a secret Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency black weapons operation.
Assigned by the Agency as temporary protector for Bowman, CIA Officer, Erica Morillo finds her duties conflicted by unexpected emotions, as the two are drawn into the tangled web of intrigue and deceit. With a life and death struggle climaxing on a frigid remote Alaskan island, International tensions mount between superpowers unwilling to acknowledge the true nature of their involvement.
The Central Intelligence Agency, since its inception in 1947, has conjured up many ideas within the conscience of all who hear those formidable words. It has inspired fear in the hearts of our enemies, and a deep sense of pride from a grateful Nation. Though many of the heroic stories of invisible heroes will forever remain untold, the Agency remains a fertile ground for fanciful stories of all kinds.
This book endeavors to weave a common thread through secretive government agencies and foreign powers in an attempt to keep the reader guessing. While the science behind this story remains safely in the realm of theoretical physics, today’s theories often lay the groundwork for tomorrow’s technological breakthroughs. Technologies that offer incredible power to anyone willing to pay the ultimate price!
Imminent Threat explores one such technological breakthrough, and is based on the development of a top-secret device being designed by the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency, under the CIA Directorate for Science and Technology. This new technology however proves too tempting for some, and the espionage that follows reaches the highest levels of the Federal Government. Though the technology discussed within this book is theoretical in nature, it is based on Einstein’s predictions of a fundamental force of energy remaining within the fabric of the Universe from its creation.
While this book strongly attempts to blur the lines between fact and fiction, the possibility of such new devices usher us into a new and amazing age! This extraordinary high stakes game of National security poses many inherent risks however, and as with any theoretical technology, the possibilities of exploring these new and untested methods pose varied degrees of danger and uncertainty. With the strong allure of corrupting power achieved through incredible technological advancements echoing to the base levels of human nature, some find the seduction of selling government secrets too overwhelming for the flawed personality.
As power turns to greed within the corrupt, events can spiral out of control, taking one to depths unthought-of. As we move into the realm of danger and intrigue, friend and foe often take on indiscernible shades of difference, only revealing themselves under the burning light of intense International and personal pressure.
Jack leaned forward in his chair to lean closer to Erica.
He stared directly into her eyes and said, “You see, Erica, I lived out in the cold long enough to see things others never see. I could pick the one undercover operative out of a crowd of a hundred. Do you know why? Because it takes one to know one, Officer Morillo. You can see it on their faces, and in their eyes. They’re mixed in society, but not a part of it. Perfectly blending in the background, but always out of place. Lost in a sea of ordinary lives, while living extraordinary ones. There are many officers who master the details, Erica, but precious few ever master the extreme disconnection from their true lives.”
Jack eased back into his chair, “Now, why don’t you two tell me why you’re really here?”
